Follow this guide and you’re guaranteed to be loving Winter in no time!

First things first.... snuggle up.

Winter brings with it cold, wet days with temperatures dipping into the single digits. While you can’t do anything about the low, low temperatures, you can make sure to snuggle up to something warm and cosy to combat the cold. We’re talking onesies, slippers and the best plush hooded blankets. Shop the best of Winter on our site now.

Cook the meals you love.

There’s no doubt that butternut soup is one of South Africa’s staple meals at Winter time. The versatile and easy to use butternut can go from a lowly vegetable to a hearty meal with just a few ingredients, easy enough for anyone to make.

But hang on, we’ve got the plug too! Visit The South African for their top-notch version of this must-have Winter warmer.

Plan your favourite Winter activities.
Nothing says Winter quite like your favourite activities that you get to enjoy in the colder seasons. We’re talking warming wine tastings at one of Cape Town’s award-winning wine farms, visiting any one of the country’s top restaurants (most restaurants do a dedicated Winter menu) or simply planning an evening for you and your significant other to snuggle up on the couch with a good movie.

Get moving.
Getting outside may seem contrary to what sounds normal for the cold season, but doing so is not just guaranteed to get the blood pumping but is also great for your state-of-mind. Outdoor activity is linked to improved memory and can help to put you in a good mood. All you need are the sights and sounds of nature and a can-do attitude.

With our easy suggestions and our awesome Winter range you may find yourself loving Winter more than you realised was possible. We wish you cold days and warm nights in your Iconix Winter wardrobe.
